Dear Malcom,

When will you wake up to the fact that this isn't about race and never was? We are not affiliated w/ the KKK, the neo-nazis, or any other "hate the black man" group. Most of us would have GLADLY voted into office a black man, a brown, red, yellow man who is an AMERICAN w/ INTEGRITY, HONESTY, LOYALTY, TRUSTWORTHYNESS. This was never about race dear Malcom. Most of us were not that enchanted w/ McCain either (by the way, you know he was white...right?).

We didn't like Obama because of what he stands for, his policies, his connections and ties w/ shaddy individuals and events. We would have felt that way if Obama had been white.

You are wrong Malcom, racism is not over, it has just shifted direction. Whity may have been racist 40 years ago, but no longer, where as black people are now the most racist bigots I have ever known. Colored folks in America have just as many opportunities as whites, but now, in may cases, they have more.

America has indeed voted for a change. The slogan of this campaign that just made me sick to my stomache every time I heard it. You all were so concerned w/ "Change", you don't care (for now) what direction that change takes you. You have voted, you have won. You've made your bed, you will have to sleep in it. 62 million of you can keep your mouths shut when the light bulb clicks in your heads and you see what the other 52 million have already seen.

By the way, a less racist direction? If you had done your homework at ALL, you would see that Obama and Michelle (sp?) are the most racist, bigoted, extremist people in America. Go look at the web site for the church the attended for the last 20yrs. Spend some time there. Go find the utube videos of there preachers sermons. Tell me they aren't hate filled against the whitey/America messages. What's that? Oh...they don't attend that church anymore? How convienent. How convienent that they quite going there after 20yrs when it's polictically advantagouse to do so. I DON"T BUY IT. OPEN YOUR EYES AND YOU WON'T EITHER!

Wake up dear Malcom, this is 2008, not 1908.
